How much insurance coverage do NSFs/NSmen receive? According to Mindeaf, not much really (image below).

How could the life of a Singaporean son be worth so little?
Since safety is not an issue in the army and accidents/fatalities are rare, group insurance premiums shouldn’t cost an arm and a leg.
At a fraction of the $15,000 to $16,500 – mostly CPF dollars – NS Home Awards, coverage could easily increase to $1 million, not much in the most expensive country in the world.
Insurance coverage for NSFs and NSmen should increase and I hope Mindeaf is listening.
